Title: Malé dejiny veľkých akcií: Sčítanie ľudu z roku 1919

(A Small History of Big Events: the 1919 Census)

Abstract: The article deals with the first special census in Slovakia, which took place just after the establishment of Czechoslovakia in 1919. It not only describes its basic milestones but also points out and evaluates its uniqueness and significance. Despite the fact that its results have never been comprehensively evaluated and due to the fragmentary nature of the information it will not happen in full, in the history of Slovakia it was an exceptional and extensive event of the newly created public administration after the establishment of Czechoslovakia.
